The contemporary drama Queen Sugar, set in Louisiana, chronicles the lives and loves of the estranged Bordelon siblings: Nova (Rutina Wesley, True Blood), a worldly-wise journalist and activist; Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Unforgettable), the savvy wife and manager of a professional basketball star; and Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe, Awkward), a formerly incarcerated young father in search of redemption.
The program is laudable, in vision and execution. Winfrey and DuVernay have said that they wanted to showcase topics that mattered to them in “Queen Sugar” — such as mass incarceration, about which DuVernay has made a documentary. And in making a story that centers on black women owning property, the producers are offering a theme of empowerment to one of the most disenfranchised demographics...To be sure, it seems possible that “Queen Sugar” wants to be nothing more than a soapy Southern fantasy of deep roots and sprawling family, with overarching character beats less significant than the mere existence of these conversations and concerns on television. If that is the case, DuVernay has ensured that the series will, at least, be a very fine-looking one.--Sonia Saraiya, Variety, September 2, 2016
